Check out these amazing firework photos and coverage of the Santa Barbara Fourth of July Celebration – captured by local blogger modeofaide.
“We were running late. Shifting around scores of people as we rushed along the downtown section of State Street, we began to both hear and feel the explosions in the sky. It didn’t matter. Our patriotic endeavor was successful. The only thing more pleasant than the fireworks themselves were the looks on people’s faces as they gazed upon the blinding colors. Independence is beautiful.”
